Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2012
This description of Marcela Paramo's work was prepared when Marcela Paramo was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2012.
Through her program, Friend School, Marcela Páramo promotes empathy among children and adolescents with disabilities and those without them. Teaching empathy early on contributes to a more inclusive society in which the topic of disability will no longer be a physical, social, or cultural barrier.
